The problem with extending the reed too much is that the lower notes will not
speak anymore, and will often start to roll. A similar problem exists on the
saxophones. The reason for this is acoustical and occurs on all conical reed
instruments to some extend. It has to do with what is called "frequency
response" of the bore.

Hello Brain,

Wat you say is just not true (sorry)... The hobo is conical, therefore
the mensure (relation between bore diameter and length of the bore on a
parrticular note) vary mutch less do to changing the length than it
doos on the klarinet.

The effect you describe is the big problem with the klarinet (and lesser
with the flute) but a whole lot lesser with the oboe!

I think that it is a historical custom... and do to the fact that the
sound of that particular instrument is mutch more penetrating... (Yes
David, and to stop the embarrassing crying...:-))
